“House of Gucci” launches on November 24, after being in the works for years. The project faced several obstacles on its way to finally come to fruition, but is now set to debut just in time for Thanksgiving.
Beginning in 2006, Ridley Scott was to direct the screen version of The Fall of Gucci, with Andrea Berloff writing the script, despite well-known disapproval from the Gucci family. In this first iteration of the project, Leonardo DiCaprio and Angelina Jolie were in the mix to play Maurizio Gucci and Patrizia Reggiani, respectively. In 2012, Scott’s daughter Jordan took over the management reins, linking Penelope Cruz to play Patrizia.
Ridley Scott regained control in 2019 and Lady Gaga was confirmed as Patrizia in November 2019, then in April 2020 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer acquired the rights to the film. Jared Leto, Al Pacino, Jack Huston, Reeve Carney, and Adam Driver finally tackled the set, and the rest is history.
With the final set of the ensemble, take a tour through who plays who in our cast and character guide below.
